Tarot Card Meanings > Minor Arcana > Eight of Swords

8 Swords are stuck in the ground like bars in a prison, as a blind-folded woman is trapped within. The swords are like negative thoughts that have cut her off from others and have bound her in depression, fear, or anger. This card can also be interpreted as incarceration or isolation. The situation should be temporary, as the woman holds the keys (thoughts) to her own escape. Below you can view the various artistic interpretations of the 8 of Swords card.

8 of Swords

Inflation of the ego.
Flaunting the laws.
Ostracized or jailed by respected society.
Playing your own game.
Sometimes, isolated by fame.
Breaking taboos and tradition.

Are you demanding to have it your way?
